    Management of Human Resources: A Student-Centered Approach is designed to change the way in which students view the field of human resources and to provide them with an engaging and interactive learning experience.

    Each topic within the text is presented in an historical, psychological, or organizational context. The book features coverage on the strategic selection of employees, equal employment opportunity issues, training employees, compensating employees, employee benefits, motivating employees, employee performance evaluations, and organizational change.

    Students are guided through an interactive learning process that systematically builds the reader’s knowledge and expertise. The text employs examples, applications, and interactive problem-solving opportunities that enrich the learning experience and challenge students to develop a practical system of problem recognition, assessment, and solution development.

    Management of Human Resources is an ideal textbook for courses in organizational development and human resource management. In addition, each chapter can be used as a training resource in a business setting for human resource personnel.

    Mitchell Sherman, Ph.D. is a licensed consulting psychologist and a retired professor in the College of Education, Hospitality, and Human Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. He holds a Ph.D. in industrial/organizational psychology from the University of Minnesota and a master’s degree in international economics from the University of Illinois.
